He is maybe rebating his gross profit before taxes, not his gross revenue. After deducting his allocation of fixed, semi-variable and variable expenses. Maybe.

Or more likely he is just pulling a number out of his butt and calling it a day because nobody can get a straight answer out of him. Thats the reason for divesture.

Charitable donations by the rich, IMO, are not charity. If you're trying to reduce your tax load through charitable donations, that's not charity! Those taxes you didn't pay fall on other taxpayers!

This.
And Trump is the furthest thing from a "good" man that I have ever seen.

There are many people who have worked for Trump that still haven't been paid by him. He has a history of this as well as lying,etc.
Are we to believe that he actually "donates" anything from his heart and not because it somehow benefits him? Ha

Trump and charity money ----I'm always skeptical when I see the topic of Trump/charity. He's so untrustworthy that I'm sure there's a scheme behind the story.

You forgot he was the first man to walk on the moon, and Jupiter.

Ooooohhh ! Good one ! I would love to see proof that Trump actually donated any money to anyone. Sounds kinda fishy to me.
